I Still Have a Lot to Offer World Football - Claude Le Roy

French manager, Claude Le Roy says he still has a lot under his sleeves to offer African football despite his age.

The 73-year-old is currently unattached after resigning from his post as Togo national team coach.

Le Roy stepped down from his role as Togo coach after a failed bid to qualify them for the 2021 AFCON to be staged in Cameroon next year.

The former Ghana Black Stars coach took over the reigns of a tattered Togo side in 2016 but managed to weave his way with them to the 2017 AFCON in Gabon.

The French nation has since failed to qualify for the AFCON.

Le Roy told them BBC.

"I still have the energy to coach. Since yesterday, I received phone calls so I will think about it," he told BBC Sport Africa.

Le Roy has guided six different countries to nine Africa Cup of Nations including Togo in 2017.

Le Roy failed to guide Togo to the next AFCON after the Hawks finished bottom of the group qualifiers.

Togo finished with two points behind group winners, Egypt, Comoros and Kenya.

Togo will turn attention to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers as they are paired against Senegal, Congo-Brazzaville and Namibia.
